Fun Learning with TIME for Kids

My students need TIME for Kids magazine because it is an excellent resource for reading informational text and learning current science and social studies topics.

My Students

My students are mostly of immigrant descent. They will benefit from reading and learning about things around the world and then answering questions about what they learned. This will greatly improve skills needed to achieve Common Core testing in third grade.

My school is mostly of Hispanic descent.

They are mostly very good students and eager to learn. My school is in an Abbot district. It has pre-k to 8th grade students. We have a great working and learning environment. Our school requires students to wear uniforms. We provide them with breakfast, as well as lunch. We also offer after school programs after winter holidays to improve skills for standard testing. We provide daily intervention programs for any students falling behind.

My Project

TIME for Kids will be a great resource to link my students to the real world. It is a fun way to teach how to answer questions by reading informational text. Students can highlight answers when they find them and they will also get to keep their own issue. I can use it as a center, homework or whole classroom instruction. I have seen TIME for Kids being used by other districts and want my students to have this benefit also. I only want the best for them!

This donation will greatly improve my students' standard testing results because we do not have social studies or science textbooks.

Cross curriculum learning will greatly advance my students' literacy and other skills by making learning fun with colorful issues. I can't wait for them to learn about current issues about their world! Thanks in advance!
